On August 16, 2016, Hagar International, in partnership with UNICEF, launched a set of evidence-based tools for “Supporting Child Victims and Witnesses in Cambodia’s Legal Process”. The step-by step guide was developed for lawyers, child advocates and guardians to support child victims and witnesses in Cambodia’s criminal justice system.
The guide, first of its kind in Cambodia, was unveiled to members of the government and NGO partners in the country. The training materials include tools to implement a court preparation program, which is widely regarded as crucial in minimizing the trauma often experienced by children going to court. The toolkit will also help children and their caregivers understand the court process through checklists and steps to protect the child in court.
